The typical pundit career change: Running for office, latching onto a new pol, milking the speaking circuit.
Bay Buchanan is moving into real estate.
The conservative commentator — former U.S. Treasurer, manager of big brother Pat Buchanan’s three presidential campaigns and regular on Fox — has signed on to sell houses for McEnearney Associates in McLean.
“I wanted to do something different,” she told us. “My full-time job is a real estate agent.”
Buchanan took Mitt Romney’s loss hard and said she’s sick of negative politics. She took a real estate course after the election and got her Virginia license last week.
“I’m really excited about it,” said the home-improvement fanatic. “I love fixing up houses. I love tearing down walls.” A Washington native, she wants to get licenses for D.C. and Maryland, too.
No experience? No problem.
“She knows a lot of people in the greater metropolitan area,” said new boss, McEnearney’s Paul DiCicco. “She’s got what we call a ‘tremendous sphere of influence.’ ”
Real estate appears to be the new glamour gig: Elizabeth Kucinich joined a D.C. real estate firm in December , but is keeping her public affairs job. Buchanan told us she’s giving up politics entirely. . . for now: “I’m taking at least six months off.”
